Dear Abigail,

Dear Abigail.

Merry Christmas! We woke up today and saw that Santa had come to visit you! Of course we knew that you were on Santa's good list. In our eyes you are just perfect. The greatest gift of all. You sat in your bumbo chair and helped mommy open presents. You got: Holiday Barbie, Snow White DVD, Shape sorter, Wagon and a Micky Mouse Doll. You loved everything you but, but most of all liked playing with the ribbon it was packaged in. Your Micky Mouse doll i think was your favorite, it went straight for your mouth and you started chewing on it's nose.

You were an Angel in the Christmas play at church this past Sunday. Gabriel carried you in. You wore a white onesie that had a white tutu attached to it, and I purchased some angel wings and a halo for you to wear. You looked beautiful. You looked like a little angel. I don't think that you needed to wear an angel outfit to look like an angel, you had that one covered.

You have made this Christmas holiday just wonderful. We told you all about Jesus and how Christmas was his birthday. I never want you to get wrapped up in the gifts of Christmas, we always want you know the true meaning of the season. I love you Abigal, and I love this extra time off of work to get to spend everyday with you.

Momma (:

Dear Abigail,

My precious child,

We took you to your four month appointment today; however you were 4 ½ months old. You are 26 inches long and 15 lbs and 7.5 ounces. 93% in length and 79% in weight. I think you are going to be tall like your daddy. You are so much like your daddy; you first off are a spitting image of him. There will never be a doubt by anyone who your daddy is!

We had the most amazing thanksgiving. We bought you a shirt that says babies 1st thanksgiving and a friend bought you one that said thankful for mommy. I know you are thankful for your mommy you show me by your hugs and sweet smiles and giggles that you give me.

Your favorite toys right now include your links, your little cow doll, and of course, how could we forget buttercup. Buttercup goes with us everywhere that we go. This is just a soft cushion doll that your cousin got you when they came to visit. We are getting ready to celebrate our first Christmas! You make the holidays so much fun. I bought you a babies first Christmas outfit the other day and can’t wait for you to wear it. I have told you that next year we will get you one that says babies 2nd Christmas if they make those.

I have also started making you hairbows, and you absolutely love to wear them. I’m so surprised that you leave them on but you do, and you are oh so cute. I have about 1000 pictures to prove how cute you are. You have one for each outfit!

I love you more everyday Abbyroo. I just started back to work and it is so hard not to be with you at home. I call the daycare 2-3 times a day to check on you and the teacher every time just talks about what a good baby you are. We hung pictures in your crib there, and of course you take your special buttercup doll and blankie. The highlight of my day is picking you up. I love you so much.

Love Mommy :-* :-*
